What do you guys think of my powder coated beast

24 posts in this topic

should have got it anodized, powder coating wears off easier... should have done the rims on that bad boy.... blue rims are sick

looks pretty sharp!

did you strip the old paint off first before powder coating?

and is it true that if the old paint is stripped and then you get it powder coated... you can save a good amount of weight?

anyways nice looking bike and some blue or black rims would look very quality :banghead:

I was thinking of doing the wheels blue or maybe black. It look like it will be a pain in the ass to disassemble the wheels to have them powder coated. I would rather be :banghead:

You can't anodize steel.

P.S. You are missing a motor mount bolt. :banghead:

The parts in question, the side covers, are made of magnesium or aluminum, not steel.

The powder coating shop did all the media blasting on the frame for me.

Is the frame oil reservoir thoroughly cleaned after the blasting?

BTW-nice bike. And get rims black, not blue if you do them.

They said to flush it with mineral spirits because stuff still gets in it even with the holes plugged.

Nice heat shield. You should paint that blue too. Those stupid motor mount bolts just make your bike heavy anyways.

Looks sweet, but it would be even sweeter if the plugs to the ignition cover were also powdercoated in the same color.
